. let me repeat that. the so-called schumer-obama plan is a plan to permanently hand the president a credit card without spending limits and without lifting a finger to address the national debt. truly outrageous, especially when you consider that our debt is now $17 trillion, which makes us look a lot like a european country. we have to get our debt under control before we move any further down the road to greece or spain. and time is not on our side. now i hear the senator from new york is going to try and sell his proposal as a -- quote, unquote -- mcconnell plan. i appreciate the attempt at a p.r. gimmick here, but there are two huge differences between the schumer-obama plan and what i proposed in the past. first, schumer-obama would raise the debt ceiling permanently. i reject that idea entirely. and second, unlike schumer-obama i believe that increases in the debt ceiling should be accompanied by reforms. that's just what we did in 2011. when congress raised the debt ceiling in return for enacting $2 trillion in bipartisan spending control. the spending control the president

doctor, you like your plan, you can keep them under obama care. many had doubts. one major concern that those buying insurance on the individual market, people without employer coverage would see their plans cancelled. why? those plans tend to be cheap with less benefits. obama care requires insurers to beep up coverage. that costs money. the fear was that insurers forced to offer more benefits would raise rates or dump policies all together. that's exactly what is happening. contrary to the president's explicit promises. listen. >> actually, any insurance you currently have would be grandfathered in so you could keep. so you could decide not to get in the exchange the better plan. i could keep my acme i insurance, just a high deductible catastrophic plan. i would not be required to get the better one. >> but that's not what's happening at all. exactly what he said would not happen is happening. you are required to get rid of the acme plan. you are required to buy one on the, change and it is costing americans more. so far nearly a million policies have been cancelled. over ten mil

plan and their doctor. back in 2010 the obama administration vaguely acknowledged this by noting the high rate of turnover when it came to the 14 million individuals who have private insurance as opposed to group plans. tucked in the federal register, the obama administration noted the normal turnover rate for individual insurance is up to 67%. because of changes mandated to plans by obama care, turnover would likely exceed that range. we haven't even mentioned the employers who are pushing workers off their plans and on to the obama care exchange because it is cheaper. this doesn't sound like if you like your plan, keep your plan. in fact, back in 2009, the young white house correspondent challenged the president on that issue. some may have resulted in folks being force flood new plans against their wishes. >> what about keeping your promise to the american people they swroen to change plans even if employers -- >> when i say if you have your plan and you like it and your doctor has a plan or you have a doctor and you like your dock, then you don't have to change plans, what i'

. after weeks of questions about whether the obama care website could be fixed and when many say that is masking what is the real issue here. how much these plans will actually cost. it was one of president obama's key selling points for the new health care law. >> if you've got health insurance, it doesn't mean a government takeover. you keep your own insurance. keep your own doctor. if you like your plan you can keep your plan. >> reporter: but in los angeles, that isn't what debra cavalaro is finding. she buys her own insurance. her employer sent her this notice reading because of the requirements of the new laws we can no longer offer your current policy. >> all i want is what i currently have. i want to keep my doctors and i would like to have lower premiums. >> reporter: the insurance company is offering her is new plan that would cost her $484 a month versus her current $293 premium, a 65% increase. why so much more? the affordable care act requires all plans include ten essential health benefits from maternity care to pediatric services. the administration points out many
between diane's $54 plan and a new obama care plan also fails to take into account the possibility of available subsidies designed explicitly to help people shoulder the cost of health care. more on that in a moment. but there is underneath all of that a basic truth here. insurance plans are being canceled. if, for example, your health insurance plan does not cover ten essential benefits required under the new affordable care act, stuff like prescription drugs, maternity care and mental health care, and if that policy was sold to you after the law went into effect in march of 2010, then that policy may, in fact, end january 1st of next year. and to understand why the right is making so much hay out of this, why they are obsessed with it, why it's leading drudge, the source of the uproar, you have to understand two basic truths about american health care that guided the entire design of the affordable care act. all right, are you listening? number one, the american health care system is way, way too expensive and leaves too many people uninsured. it delivers the worst value of any s

you get any answers. >> the answers were mumbo jumbo. the question i posed was president obama in june of 2009 said if you like your doctor, you can help them. if you like your halve plan, you can keep that. and that's turning out not to be true and its incredibly significant to the rollout is one thing. that's a disaster. but don't just focus on the rollout. look at the underlying statute. this is program that is clearly not ready for prime time. >> whether it's delay the individual mandate or otherwise or not, i'm wondering, knowing the problems we encountered now and steny hoyer and people saying, we kind of knew a couple of the americans here and there would lose their coverage. do you think it would have passed the legislation would have gotten further than it did? >> i think there would have been a more robust debate. this became ore -- orthodoxy for the democratic party. it was jammed through when harry reid had 60 votes. they couldn't do any changes on it once scott brown won his election and the threshold dropped below 60. they have been unwilling to negotiation and they're no

? >> well, if you're in kentucky, virginia, or idaho and have a plan that doesn't meet obama care's requirements, insurers will discontinue your current plan and are expected to offer new plans that meet the new requirements. for some people, that could increase their premiums. for others who might qualify for a subsidy under obama care, it could be cheaper. either way, you're going to get a new plan. >> so let's use kentucky for an example. what happens there? >> about half of the roughly 600,000 people in the state's private insurance market will have their current insurance plan discontinued by the end of the year. and i talked with a state insurance department official who told me that the important thing for people to remember is that they can't compare their old plans to their new plans. because the new plans include things that have never been covered before. so that could leave many people confused and upset. afterall, the president said they could keep their current plans. >> chris, thank you. speaking of all this, jay carney was just asked about this. the white house dai
reform is to do away with plans like this. they are essential health benefits offered with obama care. this is what we call new standards that must be provided to consumers. why doesn't that get reported by all the people who think that, well, 40 to 60% of the people are going to be losing their insurance. over 2 million. 2 million people in this country, charlie, have got lousy insurance and obama is trying to do something about it. that's your headline on cbs, dude. first, ambulatory patient services are going to be included. doggone it, they're going to give you a ride to the freakin' hospital. you could get covered without being admitted to the hospital. this, of course, is another good thing. emergency services are going to be covered. hospitalization is covered. this includes even surgery? oh, yeah. maternity and newborn care is on the list. mental health and substance use disorder services are also covered. prescription drug costs, they are required on this plan, as well. rehabilitative services are covered. this includes things like physical therapy. laboratory services must b
